It seems like Twitter is attempting to evolve beyond proprietary way of being. This sounds too good to be true but I like the idea of it.
And it seems like Twitter may become a client for this protocol.
There are MANY challenges to make this work that Twitter would feel right becoming a client of this standard. Which is why the work must be done transparently in the open, not owned by any single private corporation, furthering the open & decentralized principles of the internet.
